Nigel Barker & Family: Soho Strollin’

Nigel Barker and his wife Cristen went out with their 4-year-old daughter Jasmine to run errands in Soho, New York on Saturday (February 2).

Their son Jack, 7, wasn’t seen with them.

The fashion photographer once told New York Family how he met his wife.

He shared, “I was staying in Italy and I photographed my wife the day I met her, and
afterwards I called my mother and said, “Mom, I’ve met this young girl
and I want to marry her.” And my mother was like, “Oh, come on. You just
met her.” I said, “She’s half Chinese, she’s from Alabama, she’s
lovely, and she’s a kind girl.” My mother thought I was crazy. She was
like, “There are cultural differences—she’s from Alabama and you’re from
London and half Sri Lankan, can’t you see it’s not going to work?”

“But I was determined. I was in Italy for a week, and I left and came straight
back, because that’s where she was staying. And we ended up being in
Italy for a year together. And then she decided that she wanted to go to
Paris, so I followed her to Paris, and then she wanted to go to New
York, so I went to New York. I was following her around the world, so
she knew I meant business, there was no way to shake me off.”
